James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ was an amazing film with a great cast.  It included a young duo of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.  The film also included Kathy Bates, the late Bill Paxton, Victor Garber and the unforgettable Bernard Hill as Captain Smith.

The set was spectacular and the film was the most expensive ever made at the time.  Good thing is made more than a billion dollars.   Nevertheless, let’s see how well you remember the movie.  If you can’t get through as lucky caller number nine, then amaze your friends and co-workers with the trivia questions listed below.  Enjoy!
